THIS WEEK IN BB CREAM: ELISHA COY ALWAYS BB

Hi folks, i'm back with our weekly bb cream feature.  This week is a new brand on my radar.  Elisha Coy. I got this sample bb cream from kkochipida.mulitply.com when i ordered a full size ElishaCoy snail cream.
In my search for the best snail cream, ElishaCoy popped up.  and so did their bb creams.  This is a sample size and therefore no box.  therefore, too, there is no ingredient list picture of my own.  but i hope the pictures below would help.
 so it gives the usual bb cream promise.
 and here's the ingredient list.  kindly click the picture to enlarge.
and here's the product description from the back of this sample.  i like the fact that they were kind enough to include a how to use and a little product description on the back of this sample tube.  it's in English since this brand is targeted for the west.
it's a thick foundation and quite, dimethicone-y.
but with medium to buildable natural looking coverage with a little satin finish.
so it evened out my coloring.  the under eye darkness.
and it's not reflective considering it has spf of 35 and pa of ++.
and now my entire face with this bb cream.  my only two 'issues' 
for something that says baby - it makes me look made up (my camera is just way too kind to me)
and for something that says baby - it's quite thick and dimethicone-y in texture and feeling.
Likes:

  • hardly any noticeable scent
  • medium to buildable coverage, you can use this, too, without setting powder
  • satin not shimmery finish
  • pore coverage is a winner
  • didn't break me out, no new millia, black or white heads
  • spf 35 is great for indoors, pa of ++ is ok for indoors, just don't stay out too long in the sun or under direct sun light for too long
  • does not cake up in the middle of the day
  • easy to remove at the end of the day
  • but coverage lasts all day (but i haven't been walking around in humid heat lately so i haven't tested it out for that)
  • oil control is so so, i still have to blot out my oily t-zone twice a day.
  • shade match is almost there.  it's still a tad darker than my neck but just a tad that it looks normal on me. (yung hindi naman masyado too light, that's freaky scary LOL)
  • doesn't really oxidize on me
Dislike:
  • baby? so it gives a clear looking face without blemish, but i feel too made up under this.  
  • slight heavy feeling, like the feeling of too much foundation
  • oil control contrary to it's press release is merely so so
Do i recommend this? - yes, specially if you live in a temperate climate (not humid and tropical)
Will i purchase the full size? - no i wanna try always nudy

has anyone else tried this brand?

Marge said...

thank you, i like it, too ^_^

Dawn said...

I haven't but i want to. wonder if it will be available on the multiply site you mentioned...

Marge said...

yep, nagpa quote ako for another bb variant ng elisha coy, but had to beg off and just stick to the snail cream. sa snail cream ako malakas now eh. so yeah she has it, it's just not listed on her site since it's not a commonly requested brand yet ;-)

Ugh. I don't like face makeup that leave a heavy feeling on my face. If I get a chance to try this out, sige, I guess that will be ok. Pero to buy one for myself, baka pass muna. I think may ibang Elisha Coy bb creams with much favorable reviews so abangan ko na lang kung may ma-review ka ring iba.  Ako rin ay curious pero ubusin ko na lang muna yung current stash ko hahaha.

Marge said...

feel ko baka mas ok yung always nudy, parang ang effect ey yung sa snoe na bb cream, parang veil lang ang coverage.
yep, medyo naging heavy tas yung pang set ko pa di ba is yung revlon mineral aqua foundation, so ayun hahaha mukhang lalabas for something more special than a normal ofc day. :P (soooo not baby)

Marge said...

thanks!

Clair said...

oo nga. it's not so baby hahaha XDDD unless baby who immediately wants to be a lady ang effect? XD

Marge said...

hahaha yung nudy pa siguro :P

thank you for your comment ♥

Nice review btw :)
I want to buy bb cream but I can't choose between Elisha Coy Always Baby BB Cream and Always Nuddy BB Cream. Can you help me? ><

Marge said...

hi there! thanks!
hmmmm i look too made up with the always bb, and it feels a little heavy compared to my all time holy grail tony moly expert triple and l'egere white multi. so if i were to recommend, i'd go for the nuddy if you were gonna try an elisha coy bb cream ♥

pradivtatas said...

thanks! <3

chiarah said...

i recommend elishacoy always nuddy bb cream.. it's for sensitive skin type so it's really safe plus it is also good.. the texture is a bit darker than always baby but when you applied it on your face, it looks radiant and blemish free.. very refreshing look :) i use nuddy for over a year and it never fails me :)

Marge said...

oh, yes, i hear that one is really nice. i'll try to get that one of these days. for normal daily wear like for the ofc or school ^_^

Kat Bulaong said...

i also got the same sample from kkochipida! I can't wait to try this one, although I'm a bit scared of the dimethicone-y feeling. o_o because my face seems sensitive to silicone

Marge said...

i loved that. effective and yes, it's quite dimethicone, but i didn't break out naman ^_^
